Henrietta doesn’t want a husband… Miss Henrietta Tweed is convinced that she carries a curse―one that’s responsible for killing her previous guardians. So when she’s sent to Lucien Trent Blakewell, the fifth Duke of Blakewell and the last man her father trusted to care for her, she knows the only way to save the duke is to persuade him to sign over her inheritance and set her free.
Does she? Lucien doesn’t believe there’s a curse and just wants to get his new ward off his hands by finding her a suitable husband. But as the chemistry between him and Henrietta grows, he is increasingly tempted to fill that role himself. And when suspicious accidents begin to endanger the Duke’s life, Henrietta must take drastic measures to save the one man she could love…
Spirited, alluring, and witty!
A Duke to Die For is set in London during the early 1800s and features the bold, feisty, Henrietta Tweed who after her previous five guardians have passed, possibly due to a childhood curse, finds herself under the care and the ward of the roguishly handsome, fifth Duke of Blakewell, Lucien Trent.
The prose is authentic and mischievous. The characters are confident, daring, and endearing. And the plot is an amusing blend of mystique, attraction, regency lifestyle, desire, yearning, gossip, tricky situations, danger, and titillating romance.
Overall, A Duke to Die For is adventurous, enticing, and delightfully steamy. It’s the first book in The Rogues’ Dynasty series by Grey and is a wonderful choice for anyone who enjoys the historical romance genre.
